Scaramucci Slams Trump’s Charlottesville Statement, “Bannon-bart” Wing

The former communications director implied that Bannon is a leaker and on his way out.

Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci criticized President Trump’s statement on the domestic terror attack in Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday, saying that the president did not condemn the white supremacists strongly enough.

“With the moral authority of the presidency, you have to call that stuff out,” Scaramucci said. “I think [Trump] is of the impression that there is hatred on all sides, but I disagree with that,” he continued.

The former communications director said that only Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, could possibly stand up to the president over the statement.

Scaramucci also went in on White House advisor Steve Bannon and what he called the “Bannon-bart” influence in the White House, calling it “a snag on the president.”

“The whole thing is non-sensical. It’s not serving the president’s interests,” he added, and he advised the president to “move more into the mainstream.”

Scaramucci implied that Bannon would soon be fired for leaking information to the press.
